Cubs | Carlos Marmol removed from closer's role
Sun, 07 Apr 2013 09:16:36 -0700

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum has named RP Kyuji Fujikawa as his team's new closer, following a blown save by RP Carlos Marmol against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, April 6. Marmol will pitch in less stressful situations in an attempt to regain his confidence and could eventually regain his job if Fujikawa struggles. Sveum said Marmol's problem appears to be mechanical and cited the "flatness" of his slider as one of the reasons for his ineffectiveness.
